Congratulations to Amy Abreu, our 2023 DAISY Award Winner! The DAISY Award is a recognition program to celebrate and recognize nurses by collecting nominations from patients, families, and co-workers.
Amy is an extraordinary pediatric nurse who has been a part of the Shriners Children’s Portland team for over seven years. Known for her compassionate care, Amy goes above and beyond to make her patients feel comfortable in every situation.
A grateful parent said this about Amy: “Amy is amazing with children, very very caring. She will go out of her way to make her patients and families as comfortable and as confident as possible. I have never met a more compassionate nurse. And obviously she is extremely sweet and kind to her patients and families, always explaining everything, reassuring, and caring. She made all the difference in our son’s recovery.”
Amy is a true leader on the unit: always advocating for patient safety, demonstrating great attention to detail, and teaching others in care delivery — all with her special touch of calmness, kindness and positivity.
